Cape Town – Law Enforcement officers in the Muizenberg area are continuing their quest to rid the beach and streets of the suburb of opportunistic muggers.
Following up on Wednesday's arrest of three muggers, they arrested another suspect on Thursday who attempted to rob a female on the Muizenberg-St James walkway at 6.40am, the Metro Police said.
This after a video circulating on social media shows how a woman bravely tried to fight back against one of her assailants after two men made off with her bag while walking along Sunrise Boulevard just outside Evergreen Village in Muizenberg.
The footage was initially shared on Bosbeer/CapeTown, a Twitter account aiming to “keep people informed about the latest crime trends, news and breaking stories”.
The video has had over 90 000 views. It shows the woman walking presumably to work when a silver Mercedes-Benz A-Class, with the registration CA 96600, pulls up next to her.
